The Memorial Gates were unveiled in 1928, dedicated in honour of those from USask who served in the First World War. Today, the memorial serves as the location of a wreath-laying ceremony each year and a place to honour and remember those who have served and continue to serve the country in times of war and peace.
Many USask community members have contributed and sacrificed in service to the Canadian Armed Forces in times past and present. The university’s proud tradition of military service by faculty, staff, students, and alumni is documented online in stories and messages.
The Remembrance Day event is open to USask students, staff, faculty and alumni, as well as members of the community and media.
